About the Book

Most of our problems with others or untoward events arise from a misunderstanding of how the world works and from a strong emotional need for outcomes that favor us, which they seldom do, causing continual frustration and dissatisfaction. These lead to unhappy lives and poor relationships with others. Instead of seeing clearly, we see what we want, living a partially delusional life. Living Well requires a blinders-free understanding of how the world actually works and the application of that knowledge to our connections with others. Making progress toward Living Well—there is no getting there—means lengthy practice, many missteps, and intense perseverance. It asks for our fearlessness in giving up our faulty visions of how things should work and throwing ourselves unsupported into the turmoil of beneficial, but highly demanding, change. This book is about what we need to know and do to bring about that change.
